The exeptional house and gardens have a slightly neglected and downcast air about them and there is a sense that the City council, while pleased to have it all, doesn't really know what to do with it. There is none of the sense of purpose that goes with privately owned or National Trust owned properties of similar stature. We were... More

There's not a huge amount to see. If you have a dog it might be more enjoyable. The cafe served good food but the queue was huge and crowds ruined the experience. The sights aren't that great. Not recommended unless you're taking something to do with you like a picnic or a football

We fancied a coffee out of the city environment. This is a lovely place to go to get some fresh air and feel out of the city. The café is in the old stables of the mansion and the original features have been kept which makes for a good topic of conversation. As you go in and turn to the... More

Growing up in Somerset and living in the city of Bristol means I get withdrawal symptoms of looking at rolling fields & the wilderness that surrounds it. So when I was shown this place by s friend I was over the moon. Its a amazing location which is teaming with wildlife. Stunning in the winter and summer. A great deal... More

We had our wedding here in March and the staff were brilliant. In particular Grace the events manager was extremely helpful and without her the day wouldn't have run so smoothly. The chef also went out of his way to speak to one of our guests before the wedding to sort out a special meal and also provided top class... More

Really beautiful views. Lovely walks. The deer are spectacular and there is a lot of peace and quiet to be found. There is a small but adequate cafe here and clean toilets. The car parking is £1 for the day which is a massive bonus. When the weather improves this is a highly recommended spot!
